Does my deceased husband still love me?
This is a powerful question that a lot of women ask, and unfortunately, there is no clear answer to it.
From a biblical and spiritual sense, some people believe that yes, spouses who have passed do still love their partners.
But there are also some people who believe that it’s not possible and there is no real ‘evidence’ to support it.
Does Love Last After Death?
There are two ways of looking at this question; one is from a biblical and spiritual standpoint, and the other is from a purely emotional standpoint.
If we look at it from what the bible teaches us, then it would suggest that yes, love does last after death.
A passage from (Corinthians 13) says, “Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.”
This verse suggests that love is the one thing that will never die, it never fails.
What it does not say, however, is that someone specific like your husband who has passed will still love you in the same way as when he was alive.
It’s open to interpretation, so I’m not going to tell you to believe one way or the other.
From an emotional standpoint, however, it’s a different story.
If you believe that your husband still loves you after he has passed, then that is what matters.
If you feel that love, the love that only you and he shared and understood when he was alive, then it’s real.
It doesn’t matter if there is any scientific or spiritual evidence to support it; if it brings you comfort and peace of mind, then that is all that matters.
Does My Deceased Husband Still Love Me?
Again, this is a tough question to answer – and it really comes down to what you believe in your heart.
There is nothing in the Bible that answers this question without doubt, just as there is no other way of ‘knowing’ for sure.
All that matters is what you believe, and feel.
My advice is not to listen to what other people think or say, they’re just giving you their opinion.
Listen to your heart and your head. If you feel like your husband still loves you, it’s because he does.
However, I want to say that if you don’t feel like he does, don’t feel despondent.
It’s very likely you’re going through the grieving process, and if you are, your emotions are far from normal.
Give it time and don’t expect answers – at least the answers you desperately want – right away.
How Can I Connect With My Dead Husband?
Connecting and communicating with a loved one who has passed can be incredibly beneficial to your grieving process and help strengthen the bond you have with them.
Some of the ways you can connect with your husband and keep your bond alive are to:
- Write him letters
- Talk to him out loud
- Visit his resting place
- Look at old photos and remember happy memories
- Think about the things he loved and do them in his honor
- Light a candle for him on special occasions or days that were important to him.
These are just some of the ways you can keep your husband’s memory alive and feel close to him even though he is no longer physically with you.
Do whatever feels right for you, and don’t be afraid to experiment until you find what works best for you.
Your husband is still with you, even though he is no longer alive. He is in your heart and in your memories.
By keeping him alive in your heart, you are ensuring that his love for you will never die.
Is It Normal to Talk to Your Deceased Husband?
A lot of people find it difficult to talk to someone who has passed, but it’s one of the best things you can do.
It can help you to feel closer to them, and also help with the grieving process.
Some people find it helpful to talk out loud, as if the person were still there, and others prefer to write letters or journal entries addressed to their loved one.
There is no right or wrong way to do it, so do whatever feels natural for you.
The most important thing is that you are honest with yourself and with your deceased husband.
Tell him how you’re feeling, good or bad.
Talk to him about your day, your hopes and fears, and anything else that is on your mind.
Remember, he is still your husband and he loves you, even though he is no longer alive.
It’s totally ‘normal’ to talk to someone who is no longer here in body, don’t even feel like you’re being ‘silly’ or doing something odd.
